Misqa tanks - are they just water cisterns or a history changing temple?


The Misqa tanks near the temples of Hagar Qim and Mnajdra in Malta are curious stone cisterns. They appear to be for water storage, most likely for the Temple Builders. There are some strange features about them that do not help to confirm this. There are also controversional claims/ideas by a Maltese man who suggests that lines carved into the soft limestone are Egyptian petroglyphs of the God Thoth and not just water irrigation lines.

Dingli Cliffs (Malta) tanks - stone larders or something else?

Stone storage caves or for another mysterious purpose?


The mystery of the Dingli Cliffs (Malta) tanks


Dingli Cliffs also have a section of stone tanks/cisterns/larders or storage underground caves cut out by man.  Along the Dingli Cliffs near Il-Fawwara  where you find the
natural stone balls (spherical limestone concretions) there are also located the stone tanks. There are not for water storage and most likely for food storage but it is still strange.

They are found high up on top of Dingli Cliffs on a small headland, no villages close by and no known Temple remains (that I know off). Why were they dug here, what was the purpose and by who? Temple Builders, Phoenicians, Romans, other ?

silos or tanks or for energy (Dingli cliffs Malta)

silos or tanks or for energy (Dingli cliffs Malta)


dingli cliffs malta - cisterns, tanks, silos or energy storage/creation?


The silos/tanks/cisterns at Dingli Cliffs malta are a real puzzle due to their location. I met some people recently who suggested that the silos/tanks found all over malta were originally designed and built for energy purposes. Be it to store energy or create energy - perhaps some of them used as twin things like a battery (neg and pos) or like a variation of the baghdad battery.



malta silo/cistern/tank and a close by electrobleme? (EDM cratering?)


it would appear the the earth and our solar system was far more energetic many years ago. it would also seem that the ancient peoples had knowledge and the ability to use natural energy and power in way that we dont know about or dont use at the moment. if you combine these together could the puzzling silos/tanks of Malta be explained as orginally energy devices but then later adapted by the civilisations that followed?

taking it further if Everything Is Electric can the whole area around the dingli cliffs tanks be explained from my own personal view of Electric Universe geology?

the strange little depression shown above even appears to be part of a mini crater chain



another cistern/silo/tank with another "mini crater" (EDM pitting?)


As with most obvious things in an area it is the subtle things that are hard to notice at first. the maltese tanks/cisterns/silos are obvious but again with this example there is another depression very close by



Malta's mysterious cisterns/tanks and associated geology


Just above and to the side of the dingli cliff tanks there are some steps leading up to the top of the rock on the headland. near these is another sharply defined hollow that looks like a "mini crater" or Electro Discharge Machining (EDM) crater.

Dingli cliff tank - built by man or formed in an Electric Universe?


this amazing little fellow is easy to miss as its near some bushes and does not appear to be empty so you dont spot its black entrance.  what is special about this tank/silo is that it is above the ground. the others are dug or formed in the ground but this shows the base of something above ground or that had a higher covering

it also has a very small "mini crater" on its side or is it an opening to put the cover on?

so does this show a proper tank above ground or a covering? is this the only 1 in the area or are there others? if its the only 1 then why?



cistern/tank - arabic/roman/phoenician or temple builders?


could it be explained in an Electric Universe or does it show evidence of gEUlogy and 1 of the catastrophes that struck the island of malta?

the rock is that special grey colour rock you find with the rock lines and other electroblemes on malta. could the mini crater here and the others in the area associated with the tanks be evidence of natural electrical discharges during a catastrophic event?


update 21/12/2010

At the Dingli cliff tanks (further south than the solar observatory hills complex) there is a cave dug into the rock on the top of the headland, very close to the tanks. This may be modern, it may be very old but the one thing that can not be denied is that the setting sun can be viewed from the window. it may be nothing, it may be everything.

il-Qlejgha tal-Bahrija bronze age village and tanks

il-Qlejgha tal-Bahrija bronze age village and tanks


il-Qlejgha tal-Bahrija is a supposedly bronze age village found on the top of a ridge beside Wied tal-Bahrija. il-Qlejgha tal-Bahrija has one of the greatest views in Malta and is beside 1 of the only permanent water streams in Malta. In fact the area is so special it is the location for the maltese freshwater crab, known in Maltese as Qabru. Perhaps Malta's fresh water crab is a sign of Catastrophe Evolution in the area?

on the il-Qlejgha tal-Bahrija plateau there are the remains of a bronze age village (pottery sherds etc) but also what are described as rock cut water cisters or rock carved storage silos, similar to the ones above. the books suggest there are around 40 of them around the il-Qlejgha tal-Bahrija bronze age village.

the ones i found where on the west edge of the il-Qlejgha tal-Bahrija plateau, right beside the cliff edge. if you go up to the highest point where the rock pile is and the large tree you will found them around there. there is even a group of 3 of them very close together.

the idea of these silos/cisterns/tanks being for carved for water storage originally struggles yet again - they are very near the top of the slope. some of them do fill up with water but the main ones seem to not be designed for that purpose.

while i was there an immense thunder,lightning and rain storm hit the area. the river in Wied tal-Bahrija was overflowing with the downpour but most of the tanks seemed to be dry. very shallow diggings into the rock surface were full of water.


the ones in a group near the tree are similar shape internally to the tanks at dingli but dont seem to have the round entrance with its ledges. i did not found many of the tanks/silos so i can not say that for all of them.

il-Qlejgha tal-Bahrija and its bronze age village is viewed from what is there has always been there but is that the case? was the plateau larger before, was the area more flat but then when the last Electric Universe catastrophe struck the island of malta did it remove large areas? creating the Wied tal-Bahrija and the cliffs? is there any evidence of gEUlogy and catastrophe in action in this area?

 14°20'2.61"E

Borg in-Nadur (St Georges Bay) bell shaped silos and tanks

Borg in-Nadur (St Georges Bay) bell shaped silos and tanks


At Borg in-Nadur and especially St Georges Bay (the one in Marsaxlokk Bay and not the St Georges Bay in St Julians) there are bell shaped silos and tanks/cisterns/silos. The tanks at St Georges Bay are a mixture of both types - the larger bell shape that can also be seen at Il-Maqluba and the smaller types that can be found elsewhere around the island.

the photos above show the large bell shaped cisterns/silos/tanks at St Georges Bay.


St Georges Bay rock cut silos/pits/vats/tanks


St Georges Bay has quite a few of the smaller tanks found to either side of the larger tanks. in the photos above you can see these smaller tanks to the right or south of the main bell shaped cisterns.

malta rock cut pits/silos/cisterns/tanks at St Georges Bay

this type is found around the island on the coasts, seemingly half done but was it designed like that but we just think it was not finished? or did something happen to the people when it was being cut out of the rock?

St Georges Bay is famous for its cart tracks on the seabed and also its cart tracks leading into the sea

Il-Maqluba Qrendi silo/cistern/tank


Il-Maqluba Qrendi - large ancient tank/silo/cistern

the amazing doline or crater called Il-Maqluba found at Qrendi also has its own very large tank/silo/cistern on the very edge of the hole.

Silos and Cisterns - various locations - by David Trump

Silos and Cisterns - various locations - by David Trump

below is a quote from the book "Malta Prehistory and Temples" by David Trump about the Silos and Cisterns (tanks) found around Malta

Quote
Silos and Cisterns - various locations

On many Borg in-Nadur sites, bell-shaped cavities up to 4m deep are found cut in the rock. Some have a rebate to hold a lid. Many are still used by farmers cultivating the fields around for the storage of water. Other pits, however, are in such fissured rock that they could never have held water unless thickly coated with plaster or clay, of which there is no sign. These then may have served to hold grain, for consumption of for sowing the next season. Over 40 occur at Bahrija. The settlement to which a group at Tal-Mejtin (Luqa)belonged has not been found, but most lie within known Bronze Age villages.

A remarkable exception is the group on the foreshore at St George's Bay, Birzebbuga, below the Bronze Age site of Borg in-Nadur. These are now mostly flooded with seawater, but that is surely due only to a rise in sea level, which has also submerged a car-rut nearby. Could these be for an import/export trade in grain? A case has been made recently for their being dyeing vats, but that can hardly be so on dry hilltops like In-Nuffara, Xaghra, or Bahrija. Water or grain, storage, though of course not both at the same time, seem much more likely for all of them.


like most things to do with malta we have to guess at what they mean. those people who built the temples and other structures left no evidence of what these things were for. virtually everything you read and are told is made up. because we know so little we project other cultures ideas on them and our own. that is why the temples are called temples.

the above quote by one of the leading experts on maltas ancient stuff shows that there are many problems with the maltese silos/cisterns/tanks being for 1 purpose. so what were they for? some have suggested for energy storage or using the natural energy that flows through an Electric Universe. could they have even been originally formed by catastrophic events that struck malta and then were shaped further by humans? no one knows and that is perhaps the only thing about maltas strange and mysterious tanks that we can be sure of.

Plain of Jars, Laos

if the Maltese tanks were used originally as some sort of natural power storage or converter system then would there by examples of other mysterious tanks in other parts of the world?
